The Workshop Aberfeldy is an independent charity, passionate in creating a bridge between education and employment for young and disadvantaged people. The social enterprise is nestled at the edge of Scotland’s Highlands, where the rural location can limit employment and training opportunities. Paul Parmenter and Gina Wallace shared a vision to create a genuine business where young people could gain direct practical skills, as well as gain transferable employability skills such as teamwork and time-keeping, empowering them to successfully find employment or gain the confidence to go on to further training.
Over time they realised that many of their trainees faced some kind of additional barrier to employment from mental health challenges to physical disabilities and moved to also offer targeted support for this group, by providing meaningful learning and interaction opportunities.
